    1. Hey there. I just moved to the area. I hail from Baltimore and have had IVF in an excellent clinic there. We want to add to our family and I am wondering whether to use a clinic here in Buffalo or return to where I was before despite the travel costs.

      • Hi ToniTee

        There are a few things to think about if you are returning to IVF treatment and choosing a new clinic.

        The first thing to consider is do you have vitrified embryos in storage left over from your previous cycles. If so I would recommend that you contact your previous clinic and, after carefully choosing your new one, to see if they can arrange shipping of your cryopreserved embryos. In this way you won’t have to undergo the whole process of ovarian stimulation and follicular puncture a second time.

        With regards to choosing a new clinic in your area don´t forget to ask around your family and friends, and we have a forum available in which you may be able to connect with other fertility clinic users in your area.

        I hope this helps and best wishes.
